Hello Derekg,

With LL 5.0, there is a new version of CUPS.
Have you try to install  your printer/Scanner WITHOUT drivers from Epson site ?
I use a XP-335 and I don't need to load drivers from Epson site and it works correctly under LL 5.0 ; on the test page it is specified "driver : drvless.ppd"



For scanner, don(t forget to stop firewall prior to start SANE.

Thanks...again :)

I have done a bit of reading and I'm possibly closer to getting the /home and/or  /root dichotomy but that has led me to wonder just why one bothers with /root at all for progs....this on the basis that nasty stuff can damage your health if it's in /root and not so much if it's in /home.

Anyway, I'm gradually making progress and this is leading me to more and stupider questions. :-[

There are no such things as stupid questions, the only stupid thing to do is not to ask them :) Well, I think the word "root" is self explanatory; as the root of a tree where it's based the whole structure of it and which can't live without, such is the "/root" filesystem in Linux, where every important/relevant file for the system to function properly resides. If you plan on installing lots of programs, then getting a larger HDD/SDD might just be what you need to do. If for whatever reason that's not possible, then consider making priorities regarding which programs you really need as well as finding some lighter and smaller alternatives. For example, those  you can start/use form within a terminal are little in size and very lightweight. I use a few ones. It might be a bit challenging at first but it's doable and depending on the app the learning curve isn't too hard. For example, I use cmus https://github.com/cmus/cmus which is a music player that runs from the terminal and works great; it's pretty fast and easy to use. Its installed size is barely a few KBs and it uses very little RAM. Here's a nice tutorial https://www.increasinglyadequate.com/cmus.html

I installed winehq and now have wolfenstein 2.60 for windows (dos) running and am fine with it but another question i have is a xbox and PC like controller which winehq can't open the pdp controller drivers exe on winehq. It uses a install shield wizard which says basically it can't installed i opted for the wine hq "solve problems program" running. Hope you can help me playing wolfenstien enemy territory with an xbox/PC like controller. I installed winehq deb package 5.6 from dir folder/ amd64 buster deb package then ran all applications/package manager (install remove upgrade software) and clicked off all the checkmarks for winegq and poof winehq worked i'm so happy. Hope others get winehq running for dos programs cheers:)

hi

 dawood  ~  100  sudo apt-get install pspp

Package pspp is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'pspp' has no installation candidate

Moi again.

OK, so lots things are going right with my new LL installation -  n5 in this last week :)...but some things are not so great. I downloaded and installed Amule with help from @Moltke and it runs, jumps, does back flips and is generally doing exactly what it's supposed to BUT I have just discovered that it's installed to /home and that Wine and MT4 also want to join the party.

When I set up the partitions, I was under the impression that as I was using a separate drive to store all my documents and data the /home directory was almost redundant... so I deliberately made the Root directory as big as I could (0n my 30gb mSATA) at 23gb and thought that as I was never going to use it, just 4gb seemed more than enough for /home.  Now I find that half of that has gone and that I'll probably be  running out of room quite soon whilst Root has plenty.

Obviously, I can just make /home bigger and Root smaller but I don't get why this is happening and would rather have all my programmes in one place. Is this unavoidable?...or am I just being dense?

Don't know about amule cause have never used it but wine's not just another regular program, I think it does that for security reasons, after all uses some foreign microsoft Libraries not native on Linux and even creates its own "virtual drive" which may somehow corrupt, mess with or damage  the sysytem if installed with the rest, i.e in /usr/lib instead of /home, snaps and flatpacks do this as well, of course, this is just me speculating but I think it makes sense, doesn't it?

Hello, I had to install Linux Lite on a new hard drive, but having trouble installing the software and drivers for my printer a Epson XP-245. If i go to the website below and fill in my printer details, and click the Printer Driver and Scanner Driver, i don`t know which version to download. Any help would be appreciated.
